A Day in the Life of a Working Mom

Time Management Basics First, let me say that I don’t really like the title “working mom” because I’m hard pressed to think of a mom who doesn’t work.  But work-away-from-home-mom is too much of a mouthful, so I’ll stick with the standard.  I’ve already shared with you the magic that is Flylady; I couldn’t keep… Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Working Mom

Cabbage Sausage Potato Soup

Ok so Monday I posted our menu for the week, then I immediately went home and jumped right off script.  In my defense, I had planned to make this soup on Sunday but we decided chili rellanos from the Mexican market deli sounded better so the soup didn’t happen.  Then, on Monday, the pit stop… Continue reading Cabbage Sausage Potato Soup

There’s a Farmer’s Market on My Porch!

Healthy Eating Made Easy I bought myself a present I’ve been eyeing for years.  The gift of “farmer’s market delivery.”  That’s just what I’m calling it.  I joined a CSA called Farm Fresh to You. What on earth is a CSA, you ask?  It stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  I’m the community, supporting local agriculture. … Continue reading There’s a Farmer’s Market on My Porch!

I was hesitant to continue the fundamentals challenge through the weekend. But day three's assignment is to visit the neighbors. I was confident I could read a few blogs while my other half was watching college football.  What I didn't count on was me laughing out loud quite obnoxiously. I'm loving my fellow bloggers.
